“You never know what you can do
A Note from Deborah Kiezebrink:
As a child I grew up in Central Africa where some of the happiest people I’d ever met lived in huts made of mud. They suffered with poverty, disease, but what inspiring spirits they had! Later my husband Erik and I assisted people who lived on platforms in the Philippines suspended over muddy marshy ground. Without a sewage system and with homes made of makeshift scraps, you can only imagine how it smelled. But they radiated with a fragrance of joy and passion... I don’t know why I was born in North America with ready access to medicine, bank loans to start a business, and other resources, but in my heart I determined that whatever business God blessed us with, we would bless back in tribute to our friends in less privileged circumstances.
Thank You to all who’ve Patronized NWI!
Since Nestleton Waters Inn has opened we have made donations to various charities or participated with many community initiatives including:
- Lakeridge Health Hospital Port Perry (CT Scan Fund)
All’s “well” at Nestleton Waters Inn! - FALL 2010 UPDATE: WE DID IT!
Our goal in 2010 was to pay for a water well to be installed in a developing country. Thank you to all of you our guests, bridal couples and business groups, and thanks to a matching doner, our $5000 gift has been matched, and we have been able to pay for not 1 but 2 water wells to be installed this year! We hope to have a photo for you soon! You can read more about the program here! NWI is well-based with a beautiful spring-fed pond and near Lake Scogog where people boat and go on dinner cruises. We know how important water is not just for tourism but for life. We have not asked guests for any donations but rather commited a percentage of your stay for this effort. How exciting to know that not 1 but 2 wells are the result! To express our appreciation, any guests booking at Nestleton Waters Inn for a B&B stay from Sep 2010 to Apr 2011 will receive a discounted stay from $220 to $180+tax (includes a 3 course brunch)! Thank you to each of you! Isn't it great that together we can do more!
After you leave NWI we’d love for you to carry with you some of the “energy” or “peace” you may have felt when you were here. Feel free to browse here for new resources that when purchased, a percentage will also go to the well! Enjoy!
